EDISON - Residents and business owners whose property runs up to Amtrak's rail lines want illegally dumped trash cleaned up.

Shop owners at a shopping center on Route 27 in Edison say people have been leaving garbage in the area for years.

"Originally, Amtrak did used to come," says Berenice Chadowitz. "This was in the 90s. We could connect with them. There was a guy who used to come down and he used to help us out and clean it up."

Berenice and Sol Chadowitz say the piles of garbage are attracting rodents, and in recent years they've been unable to get the trash removed.

With help from News 12 New Jersey, the couple has been communicating with Amtrak and hope to have the problem resolved soon.
